What is an AC to DC power supply?

An AC to DC power supply is a device that converts alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC). This type of power supply is commonly used in electronics and electrical engineering. In addition to converting energy from one form to another, an AC to DC power supply also regulates the voltage provided by the input source.

Common factors you need to take into account when choosing an AC to DC power supply include efficiency, noise levels, and reliability. For applications where high efficiency is important, such as in the industrial or medical sectors, there are specialised AC to DC power supplies available that offer greater efficiency than traditional models. Noise levels are another key consideration when choosing a power supply; you will want to choose a model that produces minimal noise so as not to interfere with the operation of other devices. Finally, reliability is an important factor to consider when choosing any type of power supply. A reliable AC to DC converter will offer stable performance and long-lasting durability over time.
